Thank You Kendra Brooks!

Kendra Brooks, WFP City Councilmember At-Large

Kendra Brooks, Philadelphia’s only WFP City Councilmember At-Large has just reinstated her Paid Sick Leave Bill.

The majority of workers in Philadelphia who have continued to physically report to their jobs through the pandemic are making low and working-class wages. Low-wage workers are less likely to have access to paid sick leave or to be able to afford a missed paycheck.

The bill applies to businesses that employ over 50 employees and could be used by workers to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19, care for a sick family member, or stay home with a child whose daycare or school has closed as a result of COVID-19. The legislation builds off a 2020 Public Health Emergency Leave bill, also introduced by Councilmember Brooks, which was passed last September and provided thousands of essential workers with paid sick leave benefits who were excluded from the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.'

Sign your name to help us thank WFP City Councilmember Kendra Brooks for passing the bill that reinstates two weeks’ worth of emergency sick leave for thousands of workers who continue to physically report to their jobs in Philadelphia.
